I have (finally!) submitted my first full chapter draft to my adviser.  Actually, though it is the first that I have written and submitted, it will actually be Chapter 5 of the dissertation and will be titled “The Science of Battle and the Battle for Science.”  It outlines the impacts of science upon military thought in the West from the Enlightenment to WWII, as well as the rise of the “systems sciences” and their relationship with the U.S. military during and following the war.

I’ll post a copy of the chapter in the Working Papers section later today.
